Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation Research Library Program Grants
The Research Library Program concentrates primarily in areas of its founders’ interests and the Foundation’s other program areas (humanities scholarship, performing arts, and Venetian history and culture). The objective of the program is to improve the ability of research libraries to serve the needs of humanities scholarship and the performing arts, and to help make their resources more widely accessible to scholars and the public. The foundation is interested in library grants that promote cooperative cataloging projects, with an emphasis on access to archival, manuscript, and other unique sources; some elements of interpretation and exhibition; scholarly library publications; bibliographical and publishing projects of interest to research libraries; and preservation / conservation work and research. A limited number of small grants are available for projects related to the history of the book, book culture, printing history, and related programs. Grants for conferences designed to address these issues in collaborative ways and programs formulated to enhance or leverage similar activity by other institutions, consortia, or funding agencies will also be considered.
Application requires a two page letter of inquiry to the Foundation. For more information, visit the foundation website.
